Two hidden South Miami gems that feature an elusive suburban living amidst the bustling metropolis-- this is what best describes the High Pines and Ponce-Davis areas.

High Pines, a little hamlet between South Miami and the Ponce Davis area, is conveniently located smack in the center of the City Pleasant, boasting wide, tree-shaded boulevards and neighborhood residential streets.

On the other hand, Ponce Davis is a suburban pocket within an already-notable surrounding area, tucked away from the busy Metro but close to downtown Miami and the financial district.

And though these two communities often shy away from the spotlight, they boast proximity to popular Miami tourist destinations, making them the perfect places to do a round-robin of all the great eats of Miami-- in separate areas and neighborhoods!

The two areas are surrounded by communities like Coral Gables, South Miami, Downtown Miami, Brickell, and Pinecrest, so you're "technically" graced with their culinary wonders too!

Are you ready to begin your exciting culinary journey at High Pines and Ponce Davis?

Here are the Top 5 Eats to try while you're here. 

Although High Pines and Ponce Davis are residential areas with no restaurants or shopping areas, there are plenty of places to go to that are extremely close in Coral Gables, South Miami, Pinecrest, and Kendall. (in no particular order)
